    MPC is a strange format, which is apparently better than mp3 (this is of course debatable). Check here for info on the codec.

    To convert it to MP3 is a bit of a mission. You'll first need to convert it to MPC to WAV, then from WAV to MP3. This I find is the easiest way (well the only way I know how). First get the MPC decoder. Then convert the WAV's to MP3's with Wav2MP3.

    You'll probably need to be fairly competent with the DOS prompt.

    The word around the campfire is that converting from mpc to mp3 causes a noticible drop in quality,In which case what was already sugested maybe worth experimenting with. (mpc->wav->Mp3)

    If you did want a direct converter there are a few available.

    MPxchange,about two thirds of the way down teh page

    Arial Audio Convert

    Software is untested by me so use at your own risk.
